Murphy's promising (if utilitarian) new series, I See I Learn, uses the concept of visual learning to help reinforce social, emotional, cognitive and health and safety skills. . . . Freda Plans a Picnic (ISBN: 978-1-58089-456-2; PBK: 978-1-58089-457-9) teaches youngsters the skill of sequencing. . . . Key words are bolded within the text, while the concepts are illustrated using insets and diagrams. Jones's bright illustrations feature a cast of anthropomorphized cartoon animals. Backmatter includes a list of follow-up questions and activities.
